How do you transform a neglected, 100-year-old home into a fun and functional family hub? Homeowner Danielle Nicholas shows us how as she tours her renovated home — from living room with custom fireplace to industrial kitchen, and converted principal suite to playful kids' bedrooms. Cameron MacNeil reveals a stylish and storage-packed basement playroom he designed for a family with two young girls. Plus, Ron Peruzza of Radiant Audio Design shares different options for integrating sleek audio/visual technologies in the home, including concealing a flatscreen TV behind a mirror and designing a small home theatre.
